    Default Mepp's Panfishing kit

    Hey guys,
    I mainly use Mepps spoons for bass, and they seem to work quite well. But has anyone tried the panfishing pocket pacs? I want to get some of my students into nailing slabs. We currently use a lot of grubs, but I want to get some of the more promising ones off soft plastics.

    I forgot to mention something. We have these absolutely tiny grubs that only trigger strikes from bluegill, not crappie.

    I would just use bigger soft plastics. I'd take an SP over a spoon any day. Cheaper and more versatile, IMO.

    I think DB4D has given you some good advice. Spoons have there place, but for me it is a narrow window of use.

    The pocket pacs are all spinnerbaits.

    Mepps doesn't make "spinnerbaits", per se .... they make "in-line spinners". Generally speaking, a "spinnerbait" is a jig on a V shaped wire with a blade or blades on the opposite end of that wire.

    Now, that being said .. why Mepps ?? Why not Blue Fox, Panther Martin, or even Rooster Tails ?? Or for that matter, the very popular and successful Roadrunner ??

    And if you want to buy bulk quantities, you might want to check with our members that make these style baits, or even the ones that pour plastics ... and see what kind of deal/savings you can come up with.

    Or how about better spins? They are the bomb. You can also change colors very quick.

    I have been using a few Mepps products, and found them pretty good. Better than almost all the spinners I bough for bass. My team has a partnership with them, and so far we have some jigs for bass. They are the bomb. That's why I want to try the panfish pac. Plus, Since I am planning quite a few field trips this year for my fishing seminar, and this year we are inviting newbies without their own gear, I need to budget things, and bought one of those 50 pack of grubs on dhgate. I regret that decision now. Will only fool small bluegill, since they are so small. They don't even come close to anything Arkie makes, or Creme lures.

    $13.80 for three baits?

    For the same money, you could buy a bunch of jig heads and bodies.
